Access Issue: RAIN, WET ROCK and RAPTOR CLOSURES: The sandstone around Moab is fragile and is very easily damaged when it is wet. Also please ask and be aware of Raptor Closures in areas such as CAT WALL and RESERVOIR WALL in Indian Creek Details


This route has been referred to as "steep splitter hands." While this is an accurate depiction of the final moves, the meat of the route is wide stemming and a crank on small, somewhat crumbly holds leading into a quick section of pumpy fingers and off-fingers. The steep splitter hands that follow are a relief. On the whole the Sting is an interesting and challenging Wingate route.


A couple minutes walk left of Cactus Flower on the NW facing portion of the cliff. The Sting climbs the front of an 80 ft. pillar with an offwidth on its right side called Bar Exam.


Doubles to #2 camalot with some nuts and a quick draw.
